This was fun! Keep bringing them back please!

I loved how the one trader sounded like Peter Lorre in the Conan story.

As far as the Riddler, I know you mentioned that there were no credits for the voice cast, but I would swear that was Howard Morris (Ernest T Bass on the Andy Griffith Show). He did a lot of voice actiong, from the Flintstones and Archie's in the 60s to Garfield in the 90s

Boo on this! I've waited nine weeks to hear you review AQUAMAN #20, Rob!

This kind of last-minute schedule/hosting changes are killing this podcast and have me seriously considering taking my desire to hear Aquaman and Firestorm discussion to another show.

I have several Batman Power Records...but not this one! I prefer the Batman and Robin voice actors from the LP featuring "Robin Meets Man-Bat", but the story was great. Like a serious version of a 60s Batman TV tale.

Not a big Conan fan, but the story was fun. I'd love to see the comic. It's Neal Adams after all!!!

Please give us more! Heck start a separate podcast for this! If you ever get around to "Robin Meets Man-Bat", I'm hereby volunteering to cohost that one with you. It rocked my 4-year old world.

Not a fan of the Power Records podcasts, as evidenced by requiring a month and a half to bother listening and comment this time.

Worst Conan voice ever. The actor sounds like he's in a low rent 50s/60s swords & sandals epic instead of the low rent 70s/80s sword & sorcery epic I expect from Conan. It reminds me of the voiceover done to the Lou Ferrigno Hercules movies to make them sound like Steve Reeves at a time when everyone wanted Arnold Schwarzenegger and bloodied boobies.

Were the traders supposed to be gross Yellow Peril holdovers?

Man, I hate it when sci-fi gets in my barbarian fare, like chocolate-covered kippers. You can't disembowel a robot, and how did Conan know what wires were, anyway? They have a lot of transistors in Cimmeria? Way to neuter the property for the kids. It reminds me of the troll doll style figure I had of noted child murderer Fred Krueger. The lecture the alien gives also reminded me of the worst leftist period propaganda.

If I saw a banner that read "What makes a car go," I'd assume it's an Exxon ad, not a riddle. But then, I'm not from Gotham City. Playing the Riddler as a quasi-Joker with that shrill voice did not improve my disposition toward this endeavor. I did enjoy Batman's surprisingly morbid lime "We die a little earlier."

Rob, you found both of these stories creepy? What a little wuss. No wonder you gravitated toward Porpoiseman.
